Water Forget-Me-Not


a.k.a. True Forget-me-not

Myosotis scorpiodes

Water Forget-me-not is similar to the common Forget-me-not, is lower growing, flowers even longer, and is a true perennial that will return year after year. Incredibly profuse ¼ in. bright blue flowers with small yellow eyes appear in late spring or early summer; bloom continues into late summer or early fall.

An absolutely beautiful ground cover for partly shaded woodland gardens, Water forget-me-not is also charming in containers. Plants need moist soil, and can even be grown in shallow water in a garden bog or pond. Spreads by creeping roots to 1.5 ft. across. Winter hardy to zone 3.

Water Forget-Me-Not seeds cannot ship to CT, MA, and WI.
